San Francisco Bay Area musicians Diana Mangano and Keith Dion have teamed up as The Great American Robbers Barons for the release of Reno Nevada and Other Songs of Gambling, Vice and Betrayal. Also included will be a DVD with promotional videos created with film makers Pablo Vazquez, Stephanie Gwyn-Brown and Vivian Vosu -  as well as several from Keith’s past career with Noel Redding from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Ophelias, 3:05 AM, Corsica and others originally   produced and broadcast by Television New Zealand in the 1980’s.​

The Ponsonby DCs is an expanded deluxe edition of the first release and also contains the never released follow up to the original hit album – “Everybody’s A DC” from 1988. Also included are extensive liner notes, photos and several bonus tracks of alternate takes and mixes of all the hits. Listen and you’ll probably agree, that The Ponsonby DCs is one of the best NZ Pop albums of all time.

The Robber Barons (CD/DVD combo)   $12.50

Corsica "Sight of the Sun" (CD)   $12.50

With Dion, Seekamp and Villalobos all having backed Noel Redding (bass player in The Jimi Hendrix Experience and member of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame) on several albums and three high profile North American Tours before his unexpected death in 2003, the pedigree and experience level of this versatile group is nearly unmatched at the local level. From the jazz and classical world, violin virtuoso Sandy Poindextor has graced the bands of jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie, John Handy and Avotcja amongst many others. In addition, it was Corsica who played as the opening act of psychedelic folk rock legend Arthur Lee and Love's last ever performances in 2005.

Twenty years after they were last in a studio together, The Ponsonby DC’s have returned with a triumphant collection of their trademark quirky and insightful songs entitled “That’s What all the Girl’s Say”. Kicking off with a secular gospel song that connects the dots between 9/11, the extinction of the dinosaurs, Hurricane Katrina and Pluto’s demotion from planetary status, The Ponsonby DC’s romp through an astonishing array of styles with their customary breezy nonchalance. Who said the second album is difficult? Not to these guys!

Club Jazz Nouveau was the only San Francisco Bay Area music club owned and operated exclusively by musicians and was in operation in the historic CANNERY Building at Fisherman’s Wharf between 2003-2005. Designed by world renowned artist Daniel Merriam, it was also a Zagat Survey Rated, first class restaurant as well as multi-track recording facility where every single set performed in the club was professionally recorded. The archives of these recordings have remained in the possession of Keith Dion since 2005 and are now getting ready for release, with Ricardo Scales’ The Days of Wine and Jazz Nouveau the initial release.

Just one of the West Coast’s great pianists, backed by the right players with a minimum of, or even no rehearsals. Who was it that said that there are just “two types of music: good or bad”?  This is really good music. Keith Dion,   Producer and General Manager CJN  2003-2005
